Zenit: The Russian side qualified for the group stage after being crowned 2019-20 Russian Premier League champions for the sixth time, including back-to-back triumphs. Their Champions League campaign last season saw them finishing last in Group G behind RB Leipzig, Lyon and Benfica. Zenit have a strong home record in domestic league play with an unbeaten streak that spans over 26 games. Look for 23-year-old Brazilian midfielder Wendel -- who joined the side back on Oct. 6 from Sporting in Portugal -- to appear in his first Champions League match and make an impact.

Brugge: The Belgian side features American goalkeeper Ethan Horvath. He has been the backup for the team but a recent positive test of COVID-19 has sidelined starting goalkeeper Simon Mignolet for the upcoming match. The team qualified for the group stage after winning the 2019-20 Belgian league championship title, their 16th Belgian title overall. Look for 21-year-old Senegalese winger Krepin Diatta to try and make an impact. He has four goals in his first seven league games this season.


No crowds but Zenit will have the home-field advantage with no travel and take the win. Pick: Zenit 2, Brugge 1
